church.family1The Power of the Word of God 

“Naught but the celestial potency of the Word of God, which ruleth and transcendeth the realities of all things, is capable of harmonizing the divergent thoughts, sentiments, ideas, and convictions of the children of men.” Baha’i Writings

God created a plan whereby humans can live together in peace.  Baha’u’llah, the latest in a long line of Messengers sent by God to guide humanity, brought this current message.  It is a Guide to Unity, a prescription for living for all peoples of the world.  World Unity and World Peace will become reality, like heaven on earth, when this Divine Message is recognized, desired, and practiced.  

At this special season we acknowledge and celebrate Christ’s birth, His gifts to the world and His desire for Peace on Earth.  Merry Christmas! 

Baha’i Faith
